Going Green Again

Very boring breakfast of some mediocre porridge from the work canteen.  With no nuts, seeds or protein in it, I was hungry early but didn’t get out to lunch until 3:30pm so I was very hungry when I hit the Market.  Then I had to rush but I managed a little stroll around.

Turnips was open – hooray.  I wish it was open every day.  I bought some more purple potatoes and some little pinky white ones too, for the weekend.

And some more blood oranges.

As if by magic, I was at the Raclette stall, just outside Southwark Cathedral.

But today I chose their toasted cheese sandwich.  Oh my gosh.  This was incredible.  Everything a toasted cheese sandwich should be.  Crispy on the outside of chewy toasted bread, oozing Montgomery Cheddar and Comte cheese with onions – you should try one.

I also bought a cowboy cookie to have with a cup of tea.  It had chocolate chunks and coconut in it.  Naughty but yummy.  Look how cute those little owl biscuits are.  I am working my way through this stall.  On the left are the ginger flapjacks I had 2 weeks ago. There are loads of sweet stalls in the Market but I am drawn back to this one each week – The Cinnamon Tree Bakery.

I went green again for supper and due to the calorific lunch, I had a really light smoothie. Celery, spinach, small avocado, frozen banana, pear, kiwi fruit, 1 tsp pumpkin seed butter, water and ice.

I love the ice in it as it chills it down and thickens it.

This was refreshing and tasty.  Definitely one to make again.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    I pray to come into some expendable money to buy myself your blender! I would be in 7th Heaven being able to momentarily blitz my meal, with virtually no clean-up afterwards and know my body was filled to the brim with the tastiest nutrients. Of course I have my smoothies I make with my Magic Bullet, but they could never do the justice the Vita-Mix does.
    Your dinner smoothie sounds so good.
